question for experienced clam keepers about FLow

If I did it correctly I attached a video file to this post. My question is based off the video, is my crocea clam getting to much flow?

Also if you have any advice as to what is to much flow and what is the perfect flow?

I know the mantle folding in on itself is to much, but any advice on this subject will help.
Thanks in advance

I'd say a tad too much. The mantle shouldn't be flapping in the wind.

I agree but on the plus side if it was truly in happy it wouldn't be wide open like that. Just take a little bit of current away. What is that just to the right of it in the video?

Look like rics that are getting pretty close. Move it some if you can. Is that a maxima clam?
